Finally Jewish resistance was met by such massive repercussions by the Nazi army, which ultimately created fear among each community to obey the rule of Nazi government. The Nazi government secured a total fascist state in 1934 and had implemented the “final solution” in 1940. The “final solution” was to systematically destroy the European Jewish population with unspeakable horrors, which included gassing, executions, malnutrition, and grotesque medical experiments. Despite these conditions, Jews in both concentration camps and in the ghettoes tried to resist the Nazi army. However, explained by historian Rab Bennett the Nazi army had practically constrained Jewish resistance through a policy called “collective responsibility”.
We study this part of our history so we know that the prejudice, racism, and the abuse of power that Hitler used which led to this mass murder and should never happen again. The Holocaust has also made us learn to appreciate, respect and value human life. Adolf Hitler was the instigator of the Holocaust. This event in world history occured from 1933-1945 and involved the mass murder of 6 million Jews. During this period Jews were stripped of their citizenship rights by the Nuremburg Race Laws.
At a certain point, it came to be the most practical solution to the ‘Jewish problem’. If this is true, why did the Nazi treatment intensify, from cruel bullying to mass extermination? The German occupation of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union gave the Nazis control over millions of Jews. Many of these Jews were poor and vulnerable, and had not been particularly well integrated into the non - Jewish society. In Eastern Europe, the Nazis began the genocide – their large-scale and systematic campaign to destroy all Jews.
As a result of the Holocaust, millions of men, women, and children of various national, ethnic, and social backgrounds died or had their lives impacted forever. The word holocaust was originally used to describe the destruction or slaughter on a mass scale (especially cause by fire); however, this term has been more widely accepted to refer to the genocide orchestrated by Adolf Hitler from January 30, 1933, when he took over as prime minister of Germany, to May 8, 1945, the end of the war in Europe. There is controversy over whether or not the term “Holocaust” includes only those murdered of Jewish decent. Today, it is generally held that the term “Holocaust” refers to all those put to death in the Nazi concentration camps, ghettos, and murder squads, and the term “Final Solution” is given to refer to the genocide of the Jewish people (also referred to the as “The Final Solution to the Jewish Question”). There is no way to determine the exact number of lives taken during the Holocaust, but six millions is the widely accepted death toll for Jewish victims and five millions is the accepted ... ... middle of paper ... ... extermination of every living thing in certain areas of the Kurdish north.
This is probably what Auden and Vonnegut want to warn about by mocking the political system that existed now. The democracy system of the United States is sometimes depriving its citizens of individuality. If it continue to strive toward equality the society, much like that described in "The Unknown Citizen" and "Harrison Bergeron" will prevail and this could lead to the deformity of humanness.

As we know, the World War II was the great war that we will never forget. The war, which slay millions people, even innocent children whose know nothing about what was going on. The war that brought the greatest holocaust to this world. This worse holocaust started in Germany by a man named Adolf Hitler, who concluded that the Jews were the nationality which made the German people impoverished. Consequently, the war broadened all over the world which including Japan, America, Russia,and Australia.
Genocide and the Holocaust Holocaust I've thought, and thought about resistance in the Holocaust and I've come to this comprehension: No phrase or verse or detailed explanation can illustrate the level of terror and oppression that took place. The Holocaust was probably the most arguably infamous series of despiteful human rights and cold blooded murder in modern history. The rise of the powerful Adolf Hitler has set his war against Jewish people, Jewish culture and Jewish memory. If the twisted philosophy of the Nazi regime was to eradicate Jewish memory, then it is our duty to remember the Jewish lives that perished and to keep Jewish memory alive. There was approximately six million Jews were sent to death camps and killed during World War II (1939-1945).
Its meaning, since 1945 has become: The mass murder of six million jews in Europe by German Nazi’s during the Second World War. Adolf Hitler, the Nazi Leader, hated Jews and found them a lower-in-status race, and a threat to the German faction. After years of Nazi rule in Germany, Jews were violently persecuted and tortured to death. Hitler’s ‘Holocaust’ was his solution that brought a world of war, with mass killing and centers of concentration camps. Hitler took power in Germany in 1933 and immediately began committing things that lead up to the holocaust.
The Holocaust was the extermination of six million Jews by the Nazis and their contributors, and practically all segments of German society participated in the destruction process. Although the Holocaust occurred many years ago the Jewish community still feels the pain and hardships experienced during the Holocaust. Many psychological effects caused by the Holocaust forever changed the way the Jewish people view the world and themselves. The Jewish people have been scarred for generations and may never be able to once again associate with the rest of the free world. Further, these scars have now become the looking glass through which the survivors and their children view the world.
The Persecution Of The Jews Changed and The Wannsee Conference Of 1942 A lot of things started to change in Germany when Hitler came to power in 1933. The Jews suffered the one most perceptible change, they were mistreated and faced with a great deal of conflict. What no one knew was that this conflict was to come to greater extremes in the future with Hitler as their new chancellor. Hitler did not wait long to act upon his hatred towards the Jews, the very same year he came to power in 1933, he placed a boycott on all Jewish shops and businesses. This was the first most obvious and evident act of racial discrimination against the Jews.
